    Oh man, awesome stuff guys!

    G-fob, that is a tremendous array! I love the green, red, and blue LCDs on the far left, the orange 5700style is also great (gives me a good idea too since I have a 5610 orange bezel on the way). Been considering mixing white and black bands and bezels for the panda/orca/SKUNK style! I wonder if they make a black nato strap with a white stripe along the center... DW-5000ML is also my grail watch which I’ll hopefully someday be able to catch. Thanks for the post!

    Moded squares, nice idea for thread, we haven't had that yet. Nice group of squares Chempop, the square shaped rabbit hole is indeed very deep, hard to get out once your are in

    I have one modded square, posted it on WUS many times, but here it is again:

    With original carbon resin



    Then replaced the jelly bezel with matte black with gold colored letters



    And now with both matte black bezel and strap

    Great posts all around guys! I'm a bit late to the thread, as I haven't been able to make it to the forum as much as I'd like to lately.

    I have two squares, both custom screwbacks




    First is the GW5000, with the lettering stealthed, black buttons from the GW5000B, and module plus combi bracelet from the GWM5610BC








    Then there's my DW5030 build. On this one I removed all of the lettering/print from the glass and polished the case behind the glass. The mirrored module and clear resin are from a DW5025 (painted the lettering silver)

    Re: Custom Squares: Q&A, show em here, fuel addiction

    Well I had a bit of fun with the bands and bezels that arrived today (now that I have the tools to do so). I had thought of doing different colors for each square:



    ...but in the end I went with the black bezels... I’ll get some better pics at a later date.



    Some thoughts:
    * The GW-5600J band is awesome, feels super strong and has a nice texture to it.
    * The DW-5600P-9 indeed has a magnificent LCD, rivals the DW-56RTB in terms of readability and viewing angles, the digits are of course a bit smaller though.
    * I do not think the GW-5000 bezel fits the DW5600P perfectly, maybe it fits the same as a stock bezel, but the buttons hug the lower lip of the bezel, I might switch back to stock bezel and compare, or order a black DW-5600E bezel.
    * The G-5600CC-3 (green LCD) has by far the brightest backlight, I wonder if it’s specific to G-5600 series, or a crazy color feature.

    Having amassed these rather quickly, It’ll be interesting to see which ones become my favorite go-to daily wearers. I plan on doing 1-2 week rotations so I can get used to each of their unique quirks and special features.

    Not exactly a custom... I did however make my own bootleg version of a "GWM5610-1BJF" by tossing a black bezel and GW5000 strap onto an extra GWM5610MR-4JF I had.

    Re: Custom Squares: Q&A, show em here, fuel addiction

    Okay folks, after a little frustration for the last couple weeks following yahoo japan auctions, realizing that the DW-5000ml is way out of my price range, I decided to look around my art studio looking for ways to destroy.. errm.. improve my current watches.

    Reading through some of the tinted LCD mod threads, I decided to give it a whirl. So I ripped apart my DW-5600P, doing my best not to contaminate the insides, I did alright I think. Then I cut some colored acetate plastic and wedged it between the LCD and glass, this part was tricky since I did all the sizing by eye. Putting it all back together was a breeze, but then I discovered that the backlight no longer illuminates the display :( I guess acetate is not the best material huh? Figure what the heck and through back on the bullbars and bracelet, might as well go all the way right!

    I love it:



    with another one of my favorite possessions:



    The money shot:
